He was preceded in death by two sisters, Evelyn Renfrow (Wallace) and Mae Lavene Renfrow, and three brothers, Wendall Renfrow, Glendall Renfrow, and Elmer Renfrow.
Jerry graduated Ohio County High School in 1967 and attended Western Kentucky University. He had a long career in logistics, working for the railroad, J.B. Hunt, and Ryder. He was baptized into Christ at Smalls Grove church in Grayson County.

Renfrow, W.L. Renfrow, and L.G. Renfrow; two sisters, Laverne Embry, and Pauline Probus.
Jerry leaves behind a legacy of laughter and love. He enjoyed being around family and cutting a joke to get a laugh. He routinely nicknamed the people he loved the most. Above all he would give of his means to his loved ones, even if it meant leaving very little for himself. He was very proud of his children and grandchildren, sharing pictures and stories with friends and strangers alike. His kindness, patience, humor, and generosity will be missed.
